Where Soul Meets Body

I don't think I could be more ready for school to be over, but I don't want this blog to become a place where I only whine. So let's focus on the good, this weekend was good times all around. On Friday my friend Katey came to visit so I hosted one last big blowout before the final push to graduation. It was pretty successful I'd say... I mean at least the beginning haha, I've heard the rest was good, and I look like I was having a good time!

Our house was a mess (stupid easter basket confetti) but it was totally worth it. After Katey left I spent 5-10 p.m. in the engineering building studying for the FE. I definitely needed the studying time, the exam is next weekend and I'll be sitting in a room taking a test for 8 hours. I need to get a little more studying in before Saturday so I can make sure I don't have to retake it. After studying I went with Stephanie to see "Date Night" and... I loved it. Tina Fey can do no wrong. She's the perfect mix of funny and self deprecating. I need a bracelet that says "What would Tina Do" because that's how I need to live haha.

What did you guys do this weekend? Did anyone see Date Night, or Tina hosting SNL. I'm so glad it's getting warmer out, I love not having to wear a jacket! Hope ya'll have been out enjoying the warm weather! Next week is decision week for grad school, I'll keep you posted!

P.S. who else things Ben Gibbard could be THE best lyricist of our time??

Days and Days

Listen to the song, do it, just click on it. If not for the Tegan and Sara concert last weekend I would have probably gone crazy, and sadly I don't have another concert to look forward to for a while. For those of you who know me, you are well aware of the shear number of concerts I go to, it's unreal, what's my point you ask? Tegan and Sara was THE best performance I have ever seen. They were so "on" if you know what I mean, a lot of bands perform with tons of energy and don't get me wrong, it's awesome. But Tegan and Sara not only spend a solid 15 minutes just talking to the crowd, they put on 2 hours of perfection.

Regardless of whether or not you like the band or their music, after seeing the concert you can't deny that they are some AMAZING musicians. Good for me, I happen to LOVE them. I have been trying to see T&S since 2000, 10 unsuccessful years culminating in an epic concert. I still remember the first song I heard in late 1999 "This is Everything" I mean, no band has been such a part of my history as them, I just want to get to know them, I find them fascinating. Anyways, what was my point? oh yeah, go see them if you get the chance you won't regret it.

Other than the concert I've been doing nothing but trying to figure out if I can afford USC (it's not looking good folks :( ) My mom is insisting that $100,000 isn't too much debt I keep reminding her that $100,000 is in fact a SHITLOAD of money. I mean, if I really think about it, I feel like USC is where I'm supposed to be... do you know what I mean? But I also don't feel like I'm supposed to go into debt, at least not that much. Also I don't want to spend the next two years having zero extra money. We shall see I suppose, I have to pick by April 15th so that's coming up really fast.

The semester is getting ridiculous, so if I don't blog much, that's why, until April 30th I have a lot to get done. My friend Carey is coming up tonight to hang out, and then tomorrow my friend Carly is coming up to watch the game. If you don't know what game I'm talking about... I'm just talking about MSU basketball being in the FINAL FOUR! Campus is going to get crazy, every year this time, there's usually a mild to crazy riot that I probably enjoy being in a little to much.

So everyone root for MSU on Saturday night! And let's hope I can figure out a way to pay for USC, and don't forget to get your Tegan and Sara on.
